president obama was first elected in 2008, his contest against john mccain, you might remember, almost felt like the easy part after his long fought and very hard-fought primary campaign against hillary clinton. it was harder for barack obama to get the democratic nomination for president than it was for him to become president once he had the nomination. and after that very, very, very hard-fought primary campaign, it was a rather remarkable decision by a new, young president, that he would choose his greatest intraparty rival, hillary clinton, to be the new american secretary of state. the only person high profile enough to actually share the spotlight with him at the time that he was elected. and that decision, that decision to put essentially the most famous political figure in the world other than himself in post as secretary of state, that decision and her super high-profile tenure as world-traveling secretary of state seemed to indicate that the obama presidency would be a new age of diplomacy. that, particularly with the choice of hillary clinton, that was the promise of barack obam

, there was. president obama himself told his aides on election night that he felt this election was more consequential than the 2008 election. back in 2008 people were voting on a hope and on a dream and on a kind of the historic promise of his election. and in 2012 they'd be voting on his record, and they'd be either vindicating or rejecting what he'd done and giving him a mandate to do more. he also felt that he had done a lot over the course of his first three years, whether you like the things he'd done or not, whether it was passing health care reform, reregulating wall street, passing a huge stimulus, those were big things he did, and we held that if the republicans won in 2012, they would roll back and undo all his pleasurements -- accomplishments. so he thought the stakes in this election were much higher. a lot of republicans in 2008 were disspiritted, and by the time you got to the end of 2008, there was not much drama or suspense around who was going to win that election especially after the wall street crisis in the fall of 2008. in this election republicans were really energ

. >>> a high court in japan has ruled july's upper house election invalid due to the wide disparity in the weight of votes among constituencies. it is the first time a court has annulled the results of an upper house election. part of the upper house is elected by constituencies from each of japan's 47 prefectures. the number of lawmakers elected by each prefecture is based on the size of the voter population, but ratio is non-proportional, meaning heavily populated prefectures are underrepresented. two groups of lawyers have filed lawsuits in high courts across japan to seek an annulment of the election. they are pursuing individual claims against the electoral committees of each prefecture. the lawyers claim that the disparity ratio between the least represented district and the most is as high as 4.77. they say this violates the people's right to equality as guaranteed by the constitution. the okam ma branch of the hiroshima high court ruled this disparity is unconstitutional, thereby invalidating the results. presiding judge blamed the diet for not acting enough on a supreme cou

in 2012. first of all there was a lot of drama in 2012. president obama himself said this election was more consequential. back in 2008 people were voting on a hope and a dream and kind of the historic promise of this election and in 2012 they would be voting on his record and syndicating or rejecting what he had done and a mandate to do more. he also felt he had done a lot over the course of his first two years. weather was passing health care reform deregulating wall street passing the stimulus, those are huge things he did and he felt that the republicans won in 2012 it would undo his accomplishments have you thought the stakes in this election were much higher. it's certainly the case that a lot of republicans were dispirited and by the time he got to the end of 2008, there was not much suspense around who was going to win the election especially after the wall street crisis in the fall. in this election republicans were energized and they thought president obama was the most important thing to say the country so you had to energized sides playing for high stakes so there's a f
